My yard has turned into the broody yard.Our Silver Grey dorking has went broody.She was known to brood,but was also a chick theif. She would fight other hens and literally steal their babies.My 4 year old barnyard hen has went broody for her fourth time.and my Buff Orpington is on the edge not sure if she is in full throttle yet.And the a black hen of mine I have no clue on what she's thinking (Acts broody every blue moon.)Then my duck I think is thinking about it (Visiting the nest and sitting more often.

I have a  few chickens.

1 silver laced Wyandotte named,Special girl

Try to collect the eggs as soon as you can, and put the chickens in the run to get them out of the nest. If that doesn't fix it, you can move on to more drastic methods like holding the hens in a bucket of cool water or replacing the eggs with ice cubes. The point of that is to lower their body temperature, which is what causes broodiness.
